Topic: The Ancient Astronaut Theory
General Purpose: To Inform
Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about the mystery and questions behind the ideal ancient astronauts theory and examples to support idea..
Thesis: Scientists and theorist point out reason as to why extraterrestrials could have had a large influence on our ancient cultures, architecture, and shaping of mankinds.
- Attention Getter: The ancient astronaut theory is the idea that aliens visited earth in the distant past and gave primitive man the knowledge tools required to create structures and mathematics
- Reason to Listen: Consider this, for 2,000 million years our ancestors lived in caves. They spent their time hunting and gathering foods and materials needed for survival, but what changed? Out of nowhere, they began building huge monuments and no one knows why. It is truly the biggest mystery today.
II. The Great Pyramid of Giza
- Celestial Alignment
Transition: Now that I have discussed the pyramids, I will now talk about Baghdad battery
III. Baghdad Battery
Conclusion: The Ancient Astronaut Theory is just that, a theory… a series of questions to keep us talking about and thinking of the stars.
